WARNINGS AND DISCLAIMER INFORMATION.
PIR is a motion sensor (passive
infrared or PIR) that detects
movement within a specific area by sensing the infrared energy emitted from a
body as it moves across the sensor’s field of view. When this motion is
detected, the sensor transmits an alarm sign
al to the control panel. The
TX+PIR can be used to protect locations where door/window sensors are
impractical or not needed, such as large areas or open floor plans. Motion
sensors also provide backup protection for door/window sensors and other
The TX+PIR util
izes advanced signal processing
a patented modern DSP
directly converts the infrared detector signal into digital form,
superior false alarm reduction, and overall detection performance,
The TX+PIR is designed to allow the presence of pets (up to 80 lbs.) without
signaling an alarm. It includes a special micro
element lens array that produces
much stronger optical signals for humans than for pets 80 lbs. or lig
NOTE: Pets come in many varieties. Some pets (especially larger ones
with very short hair), even if lighter than 80 lbs. may produce enough
infrared radiation to cause alarms. TX+PIR users are strongly advised to
test the sensor with their own pets,
in order to verify that the detector will
not signal an alarm when their pets are moving within its fields of view.
The TX+PIR includes the following features:
40’ x 40’ coverage area
transmitter lockout time after an alarm event that helps
extend battery life
Cover activated tamper
Supervisory signals transmitted every 64 minutes to the control panel
selectable sensitivity options

Temporarily place the sensor in its intended mounting location. Program and
final test the sensor
before permanently mounting it (following the guidelines in
the “Sensor Testing” section below).
Where possible, install sensors within 100 ft. (30 m) of the panel. While a
transmitter may have an open
air range of 500 ft. (150 m) or more, the
at the installation site may have a significant effect on operational
range. Changing a sensor location may improve wireless communication.
The sensor can be mounted at either
7.5 ft or 10 ft in height. Depending on the
desired mounting height, the ALIGNM
ENT POST will need to be ad
accordingly (see Figure 3
The factory default is set at 7.5 feet

Do not mount the sensor near duct work or other large metallic
surfaces which may affect the RF signals (see RF Testing). Actual
acceptable transmitter range should be verified for each installation.
Mount the sensor permanently on a flat wall or in a corner. Do not set
it on a shelf.
Room temperature must be kept between 60° and 120°F (16° and
Position the sensor so it faces a solid reference point, like a wall.
Once the desired loc

Pay special attention as to not touch the sensing element during this
process. Set aside the PCB while the back housing is permanently

Use wall anchors and screws to secure the backplate into place.
Then replace the PCB by inserting the left edge of

into the bottom left corner so that the ALIGNMENT POST is inserted
into the hole.
Ensure foam bug screen remains in place.
Replace the case cover over the sensor and when testing is
completed, the PIR cover can be securely attached to its
base by screwing the smallest provided screw into the hole located at
the bottom of the sensor.
